Its not uncommon for athletes to join the club mid-season. Should you wish to join the club, please contact us with information about your experience and ability level.
What to Expect
Each session during the week is 2 hrs long and comprised of athletes separated between field events and running events. The athletes begin with a warm up of 20-30 min. After the warm up the athletes are then guided through a series of drills that are vault and sprint related. The athletes are then separated into their respected event areas.
At the pole vault pit the coaches will take the vaulters through a series of drills and runs ranging from short to long runs working on vault technique and running form.
MSTC does have a range of poles for athletes to use. Many athletes bring their own poles. It is recommended that athletes bring their own poles that they will be using outside of the club.
Parents and coaches are encouraged to come and watch. Coaching will only be given by the MSTC coaches or other qualified coaches.
Due to snow storms in the winter months, the club will post at 12 noon of the designated day the storm hits to announce if club will run that day.
MSTC advises athletes and parents to use their best judgment in deciding whether to head out to practice should practices be held as scheduled during inclement weather.
